Owner-op's 2023 International a tribute to late father

Steve Roache's 2023 International HX520

Steve Roache ordered this 2023 International HX520 as a tribute to his father, who was killed behind the wheel in 2019. When Roache was a child, his dad had a 1997 International 9300. Roache ordered this truck in the same color as his dad's, "and even tracked down a set of the old Accuride wheels to put on it, too," he said. His truck is powered by a Cummins X15 with an 18-speed.
